We are pleased to announce the opening of the 2012 International Fulbright Science and Technology Award - a worldwide competition for outstanding foreign students for PhD study at top U.S. universities in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) beginning in fall 2012 for academic year 2012-2013.

The program is funded by the Educational and Cultural Affairs Office of the U.S. Department of State. Approximately 40 awards will be granted worldwide for candidates who demonstrate high aptitude and potential for innovation in scientific fields.


Selected participants will be enrolled for PhD study at top U.S. universities in the following 18 fields:

  1. aeronautics and aeronautical engineering
  2. agriculture (theoretical or research-based focus only)
  3. astronomy/planetary sciences
  4. biology
  5. biomedical engineering
  6. chemistry
  7. computer sciences/engineering 
  8. energy
  9. engineering (electrical, chemical, civil, industrial, mechanical, ocean, and petroleum)
  10. environmental science/engineering (theoretical or science research-based focus only)
  11. geology/earth and atmospheric sciences
  12. information sciences and systems (engineering focus only)
  13. materials science/engineering
  14. mathematics
  15. neurosciences
  16. oceanography
  17. public health (biostatistics or epidemiology)
  18. physics

(Please note: This award is for applicants wishing to pursue theoretical and research-based study in STEM areas. Policy or social science research such as, environmental or health management, energy policy, research pertaining to analysis of health systems, etc., will not be considered. A brief description of each field of study is available at http://scienceandtech.fulbrightonline.org/eligibility)


All grantees receive testing vouchers for TOEFL, GRE General and GRE Subject exams, tuition, a monthly stipend that covers room, board, and incidental expenses for up to three years, health and accident coverage, and a book and equipment allowance.

Participants also receive roundtrip travel and are eligible to apply for up to $10,000 in supplemental allowances for research funding and professional domestic and international conference attendance.

After three years, U.S. universities either fully fund or work with the grantee to identify funding options (such as scholarships or a teaching assistantship) for Ph.D. degree completion. Participants also take part in traditional Fulbright enrichment activities (Gateway Orientations and Enrichment Seminars), as well as the annual Fulbright Science and Technology Conference available exclusively for Fulbright Science and Technology Fellows. In the final year of their grant, participants attend the Fulbright Science and Technology Capstone Seminar in Washington, DC.

More information about funding can be found on the program website at http://scienceandtech.fulbrightonline.org
